This one is very similar to Requirement Four from Question 2, where we have to do trial an error
First, I just randomly tried 10%

The result is that the Sum is positive, therefore, we must increase the %

ANSWER = Yes, David should Invest, the NPV is $27,737.28 and the Investment is 20,000 which
NPV = -130,400

25,000 / ((1+r)^1)
+
25,000 / ((1+r)^2)
+
25,000 / ((1+r)^3)

The result is that its negative, therefore we must decrease the %, somewhere in the middle
15.00%

Result, very close to 14%, just rounding, so go with 14%
ANSWER = The IRR is approximately 14%, there for the Investment should be made.

FORMULA FOR NPV : NPV = ∑ {Net Period Cash Flow/(1+R)^T} - Initial Investment
Where:
Net Period Cash Flow = Cash flow for each year
T = number of periods (in this case, each year will represent the T, Year 1 = 1, year 2 = 2 et
FORMULA FOR CASH FLOW (CF) = CF (df) - I = NPV
CF = Cash Flow
df = Discount Factor
I = Initial Investment
NPV = Net Present Value
FORMULA for Average Rate of Return (ARR)= (Yearly Cash Inflow - yearly Depreciation) /
R = Rate of return
OR
Discount Rate
PAY BACK FORMULA =
Initial Investment / Cash flow per period
